I suffered intensely from psychotic depression. I didn’t know it had a name, even though I’ve had mdd and bipolar disorder. The pain and immersion into a hellish world where you are convinced the only way out is suicide, is beyond comprehension.
It has been a year in making to full recovery. Being so traumatic, I was grateful just to be alive; however, I never dreampt I would have peace, contentment, and joy.
Psychotic depression is one step before death. If this happens to you or a loved one, pull out the big guns:antidepressants, antipychotics, AND ect. Dont be concerned about memory loss, and the anti-ect rhetoric. Choose life and happiness. Weight gain from antipychotics? Rather be alive or dead?
There is life and full recovery after psychotic depression.
